You don’t have to become smaller
so others can feel big enough.

Founder, Reviving Athena

Nice to meet you!

I’m Dalisia Coppersmith, a speaker, coach, and author with a passion for helping assertive, high-achieving women return to their unique power and impact in our world.

I understand your drive, your relentless work ethic, and the labels that others place on you that result in conflict and resistance. Silencing happens slowly, quietly…and it results in too many talented women leaving organizations or partners who don’t understand or appreciate their gifts and potential.

Let’s end that dynamic and build the life and career you want!

Reviving Athena:
A Movement for Women

Healing our world requires both men and women to see the roots of their own resistance to female leadership. This common, often unconscious bias begins in our most basic family gatherings and carries into every aspect of our lives as adults.

The women we coach face it almost daily at work and at home. It isn’t enough to have a small number of women in leadership roles. We need their wisdom in every place in society.

Our goal is simple, but daunting: to inspire leaders, organizations, communities, and families to embrace the talents and leadership of the very women whose wisdom and courage can transform our world.

Who We Serve

When any society chooses to end its quiet war against assertive women, it will double its global influence and leadership. Half the world’s natural leaders are women—and they are ready to step up today.

—Dalisia Coppersmith

The world needs your voice,
wherever you are—right now.

Human beings are smarter and more sophisticated than ever, yet we continue to struggle with serious problems such as global conflict, human trafficking, systemic racism, climate change, genocide, gun violence, and gender disparity…to name only a few.

Executives in every company and government agency worry that their leadership bench strength isn’t deep enough to handle the challenges their organizations face.

Yet in every corner of the world, we have muted more than half of our natural leaders—assertive, visionary women who could help us meet those challenges.

You may have heard this before:

“The problem isn’t what you say, it’s how you say it.”

Or even better:

“You intimidate people. Try to soften your approach a bit.”

And everyone’s favorite:

“Maybe if you were just a little less direct…”

Adjust for others…
without losing your edge!

Even women who make incredible strides in their self-awareness and interpersonal skills are not immune. Our movement supports women’s personal and professional growth as they navigate life as “strong” women, where no amount of adjusting for others ever seems to be enough.

We also educate organizations and communities about hard-wired expectations and toxic responses that silence millions of women in every walk of life. If a company or a community can catch itself before it loses another natural leader, everyone wins.
